I Thought I Was Lost....

On my way in the world
I thought I was lost

was lost

i thought i was lost

I ran into the arms of many

some good




and then I stumbled upon

my soul mate



me only me

I stretched out my arms...wide...welcoming.

wrapping them around my one true love

the one I was meant for

born for

will die for

Will happily spend the rest of my life with.

On my way in the world
I thought I was lost

I was not. 
and I found

my heart's desire....

It was always ME.

This was excellent. I wonder if you could do this as a spoken word presentation... I know that I would try if I had came up with it...

Wow! This was a hella poem, my Sista. Didn't expect or foresee that closing & yet it is the perfect ending & the most important, most resonating answer of all.

Indeed... self-love speaks to it all!

& oh BTW: I realy appreciated your last comment. However, no matter how much we might want it, I just don't think we can fall in love, at will. In fact, it's usually a guileless act, an emotional whirlwind that sweeps us up & delivers us into the mighty arms of Love. At least, that's always been my experience.
